Aquarium After Dark
Time Out says
Meet moon jellyfish and blubber jellies at this after-dark aquarium adventure
There’s probably a lot you don’t know about jellyfish. These blobby beauties are one of the most successful organisms in the world, having casually floated through the oceans for more than 500 million years. There’s also some big questions about the species you probably want answered. Do they actually have a brain? Can a little vinegar cure a sting from a jellyfish, or is wee the answer?
If you’d like to learn more about these ethereal creatures and bust some jellyfish myths, head to this after dark event at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium. The evening will include an interactive presentation of moon jellyfish, blubber jellies and upside down jellyfish by the aquarium’s jellyfish expert Patrick Noble; a chat with Greg Neely, the lead researcher of the team who discovered the antidote to the deadly box jellyfish sting; and a myth-busting Q&A info session. Nibbles and a drink are also included in your ticket.
The hour of talks will be led by science communicator and environmentalist Laura Wells, and visitors will have full access to the aquarium’s Jellyfish Garden and all the other exhibits from 6pm.
